ArchiTerra CROSS

Anonymous
Not applicable
Fabrizio, what’s the purpose of “ArchiTerra CROSS” object found in ArchiTerra 20.LIB\Road Crosses library? It’s not mentioned in ArchiTerra User Guide at all. One would expect that ArchiTerra uses it automatically to generate road junctions but it doesn’t.
Is it possible to process a junction automatically in order to integrate it into the land-similarly to the way plateaus are processed?
The way I create junctions is that I built up junctions manually using plateau tool and then connect these plateaus by roads (so I don’t use ArchiTerra CROSS at all). But it crashes all the time this way…

thanks a lot for this!
as far as I understand there's no similar way to manage T junctions?

just the same!
The cross object provide you with an option to choose the number or crossing roads...

ArchiCAD still crashes with ArchiTerra.
I have a total of 5084 points for terrain. Is this too much? Could this be the reason for crashes?

Fabrizio, my ArchiTerra appears as version 2.02 on Scroll-Down Menu and as version 2.05 on Add-On Manager. Why's that?
It's ArchiTerra 2.05 (AC90) add-on file in my C:\Program Files\Graphisoft\ArchiCAD 9\Add-Ons\ArchiTerra 2.05 folder.

Don't worry, the Add-on Manager says the truth.
AC doesn't update the menu name (I already wrote a warning about this issue on this Forum - regarding the WE behaviour...)...

...but the terrain does not follow the curve which means that the digging/embankment volumes won't show accurately in the calculation. This way ArchiTerra CROSS object is only cosmetics.
So I'll still need to use plateau tool for this.

Just from home...

The next version takes care also about curves... IMHO, as architect, in so big volume quantities this kind of approximation is more than acceptable!
But... just wait for the next release...

Sometimes it's acceptable but not always. I can't wait to see that new ArchiTerra! I wish to have ArchiTerra that costs 10 times as much as it costs now but works better!
Thanks for all your efforts, Fabrizio!
